    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. Culture, Learning, Opportunity is plentiful if you have what it takes.
    Others in leadership roles working together to develop and hire the best.

    As in any ORG, everyone has a specific skill-set. Many in the same roles rely on one another to hold the team to the expected standard. If you are petty, gossip or complain you should work elsewhere.

    In working in several buildings, there is always plenty to improve upon is often welcomed by Sr. Leadership to invoke change.

    HR purposely assigns people of different personalities in roles to keep things in check. This upsets those who like to create "clickish" groups but prevents issues.

    Promotions and Inclines are given to those of us who have performed and able to raise the bar.

    Buildings are secure and for the most part clean.

    I started on the floor as a part time employee and quickly have risen to leadership based on my hard work. 2 years later in my role I am respected by my peers and Sr leadership.

    Cons

    Constant change due to explosive growth, not a bad thing but you must be prepared to accept the challenges presented.

    Parking at many buildings are a premium. Be prepared to walk to your assignment.

    If you expect to just come in do nothing just to collect your earnings this is not the place.

    Jealousy by those who cannot meet the highest standards and try to inject discord or fabricate and gossip. Thankfully, in my region It is quickly quashed and uprooted.

    Advice to Management

    When rolling out new policy add it to the wiki. Have process in place and training in the role and re-train.

    I have been working at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    hourly pay is awesome @$15 an hour. Decent environment

    Cons

    I haven't been able to pick up a shift in 6 weeks. Nothing shows on my "Moment" screen despite constant refreshing. Tried to get help from ERC...totally useless. Condescending at best from pretty much anyone I spoke with including my site manager. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, would be nice if someone...ANYONE acted like they gave a crap.

    Advice to Management

    Remote management is a joke. You have great shoppers who feel like they're not cared about. There are real people working and looking for direction. Skype and emails are ok if you like the non human connection. You know, Team building, moral and stuff. It may work for some but I'd say you'd get better results if you cared a little more. After all, these are the folks doing the labor end.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I personally like picking on a station and not having to worry about anyone looking over my shoulder as long as I make rare. Nice people very motivational. Some jobs are tougher than others. And i was able to get amnesty tech spot. As far as how to get a non critical role. Stay away from vto, be on time, little tot , keep your rate and quality up and talk to your AM. Make it your goal to get to know everyone. Get to know ams from other teams make friends with current amnesty techs and let them be your biggest promoters. But you can’t forget the opertunity amazon also gives all associates for schooling etc

    Cons

    If you go negative upt you risk losing your job . Job rotation isn’t always able to be done.

    Advice to Management

    more team building. And if they’re gonna give 30 minute lunches they should provide a way to obtain a hot lunch even if we still have to pay for it.
